The Lake Land College Community Choir invites the community to attend its annual spring concert at 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 23 in the Lake Land College Theater.
The program will open with four songs praising the warmth and beauty of “Rays of Sunshine.” Another set highlights the Broadway musical Ain’t Misbehavin’, with a rendition of the title song, as well as “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love,” and “This Joint Is Jumpin.” The program will conclude with a celebration of black spirituals including “The Battle of Jericho,” “Shall We Gather at the River,” and an exciting arrangement of “Dry Bones.”
A reception will follow in Laker Point. The concert is free and open to the public.
Under the direction of Nancy Caldwell, music instructor, the Community Choir is a choir of mixed voices including students from the college as well as members of surrounding communities including Arthur, Arcola, Effingham, Charleston, Mattoon, Neoga, and Sigel. Ann Roedl of Effingham accompanies the choir. The Community Choir was formed in January of 1998 and performs two concerts annually.
